If you don't like a reader on this precious free
service, than go buy the audio book. I cannot believe the selfishness of far too many reviewers. btw, i have no vested interest in Librivox or Internet Archive, nor do not know any of the readers reviewers treat like dirt. Many of us are poor, disabled, or trying to make ends meet, etc. I am thankful for any reader donating there time to read. You who are so upset and degrading of readers, you can always start another version reading of this book and donate your time so we can we can be enthralled with your magnificent, stupendous, splendid, sonorous, yet gently dulcet when need be, fantabulous, etcetera ad infinitum, voice.

Very good - some spotty narration though
The story was a 5 but the narration was a 3.5. I agree with the one reviewer about the reader of chapter 2. I encourage you to suffer through it and a few other spotty readers because this is a good story. I love it when a book ends and it makes me smile and this one surely did . I will say that the good narrators outweighed the bad ones on this recording so again, suffer through the bad ones. They only read one or two chapters at the most.

What is up with Chapter 2 ??
The reader of Chapter 2, really has the most irritating, sing-song reading style! Why does she read like that ? and do others really enjoy listening to the chapter being read in that fashion ? I had to shut off the book halfway through Chapter 2, because her reading style is incredibly annoying! Sorry, but this volunteer, should direct her efforts elsewhere. Reading aloud, is not doing anyone any favors.

This was a wonderful story which kept me wondering what really happened. This will be another that I look forward to listening to again in the future. I downloaded The Clue of he Twisted Candle based on the other review. I am glad I did!
If you like mystery/detective stories add the The Clue of he Twisted Candle to your need to listen to list!

You will root for the killer...
... in this book. Edgar Wallace does it again with an edge of your seat book that keeps you guessing as to how the killer did it and why. The detective is called in to investigate the murder of a very popular and powerful man. Yet, as he investigates further, he learns that this is much more than just a murder mystery. The readers also do a wonderful job.
